Catharine Congleton Mathieson died 22 November 1909. n Memoriam Mrs. George D. Mathieson is no more. After several months of suffering with dropsical trouble and heart failure, she passed away at the family home on west Main Street last Monday morning at a little after eleven o'clock. All the care and love that skilled physicians and an anxious and devoted family, together with a large circle of sympathizing friends, could devise for her comfort were brought into play, but the call of Him who doeth all things well had been issued, and while human heads are bowed in grief throughout our community, one of the best women and most devoted wives and mothers we have ever known has gone to her reward.

Kate Congleton was born at Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, 13 January 1852. She became the wife of George D. Mathieson at Yankton, South Dakota, 2 January 1870, Rev. M. Hoyt performing the ceremony. Twelve children blessed this union, nine of whom are now living, most of them being residents of this vicinity, their names being, Robert B. of Rousseau, William C., Charles S., and Margret of this city, George D. Jr., John L., and Richard W., of Wendte, Mrs. M. J. Borden, of Lance Creek and Mrs. R. M. Van Horn, of Huron.

The funeral was held in the home at 2 o'clock Wednesday afternoon, and was the largest gathering of the kind ever seen in the little city where the deceased had so often been a help and comfort to others. Rev. H. L. Russell, of the Episcopal Church, had charge of the services and the Eastern Star lodge attended the body. Burial took place at the Fort Pierre cemetery. The pallbearers were chosen from among the many friends who knew and loved her for her many endearing qualities, and were as follows: M. E. Curran, Mike Dunn, Fred S. Rowe, Warren Young, W. H. Frost, and Frank Newman.
